LOL - I was thinking the same thing!! Boy, those Phish guys make a great back-up!! I saw Neil for the TRANS tour way back when. I wasn't sure what to expect as he was Solo, He freakin' Rocked the New Haven Col. Played everything - Piano, guitar, electric, acoustic - I think he even broke out a banjo for a few tunes and he played two long sets. The man is a dynamo!

Nice. Almost posted same. Love that period of Freedom, Ragged Glory and Mirror Ball. Saw him numerous times in those years w/ Crazy Horse and PJ.

Not saying I don't love the years before. My first shows with him were right at 1980 and many, many since then. I was just lucky enough to catch a ton of those Ragged Glory shows with Sonic Youth since a friend's band, drivin n' cryin, alternated the opening slot for a lot of nights with Social Distortion. Gotta love Neil for taking those bands on the road with him and then going out with Pearl Jam as his backing band/cowriters of new materials. No rust on him.

Oh, I know, and you turned me on to that latter era stuff.

I just will forever recall him as that long haired, clean shaven, large sideburned, high voiced kid with too much angst.
